Alan Freeman - Wants List!
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: email@example.com with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.

Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Archimedes Badkar - Rumpstek (PTL 01) 1973 EP: Zeke Steppar 8:47 /
Oroa Dig Inte, Det Ordnar Sig Aldrig 11:19
- I've got "Oroa Dig Inte..." track from YouTube! - so just need "Zeke Steppar"
Françoise Barrière - SCÈNES DES VOYAGES D'ULYSSE (IMEB LDC 278 1111) 1999 - maybe?
Brainticket mit Stephanie Wolff - NEW AGE CONCERT, MC Sphinx Tapes 240-00702-1 (1985) knew about this back in the 80s but only just rediscovered its existence, probably not very good, but would still like to hear if someone out there has it!
Brigitte & The Hansen Experience - LIVE, MC Dom DOM 77-31 - if it exists!
Elisabeth Meaulne / Guy Shelley / Bernard Verley accompagnés par Catharsis - ALBUM POP POÈMES, LP PES 528.002 - a lot of this is material also found on the "Illuminations" album, but here is with poetry added

Contact - CONTACT, LP Blackfield Tonstudio Bts 721 (1972) Pseudo Krups / Osmose / Laubentanz / Faktotum - this is pre Contact Trio, but with a clarinet player instead of guitarist. Likely to be too jazz for me. An mp3 track sample will do.

SECOND CHANCE - LP Cobra 51346 (1976) - need to hear the whole thing! Doesn't seem to be so promising as the Dandelion and Popcorn tracks on YouTube are not so good. Dandelion track is a good example of how a band can go downhill in a year!

French research: 1970/80s acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...
Abramose - ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) most curious looking, could be good? single is nice!
Agartha - Fini Pour Toi / Jacky Et Freddy, 7" private (1982) reputedly prog - 30secs at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/ rockfrancais/sons/agarthafini.mp3 - sounds like a funky Hackett with a bad drummer and punky female vocals, so not very promising!
Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk?
Amalgame - LES BILLARDS VERTS, LP private AMA 30 CM 1 (1979) Apparently more Memoriance or Ange vein
Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'dit Qui Y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche. It also gets listed in the French punk discography!
Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 - Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections, unexciting based on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lA39CullClo - other track added on YT is much more interesting akin to Clivage gone jazzy
Pascal Chassin - La Nouvelle Européenne / Don Juan 80, 7" Ballon Noir BAL 45004 - curious sounding 1979 single (based on 30 sec sample on http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/chassin45t.htm) by band that's almost Komintern! A side found at http://www.bide-et-musique.com/song/13906.html
Claude Demet - HORDE, LP Crypto ZAL 6404 (1982) heavy rock trio? doubt it'll be of interest.
Giani Esposito - BOUDDHA - MÉDITATIONS, LP PES 301031 (1971) looks curious, with Serge Franklin
Metabolisme - Highway Over You
Sanctus - Jane /
Véhicule Léger - Lame De Rasoir / Nez Rouge, 7" FLVM 4540 (1980) sounds like some sort of bizarre Zeuhl based on 30sec sample of Nez Rouge at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/vehiculeleger45t.htm
L'Association Des Musiciens Et Artistes De Touraine Presente "live in Tours 1977" (Disques Barrier 11001) 2LP 1977 - features 4 unknowns: Les Anges Noirs / Avalanche / Deep Feeeling Blues Band / Novelo "Tandava"
Terrain Vague - POUR QU'IL TE RESTE UN PEU DE MOI (SRC 543 954) 1981 French folk, could be interesting?
Jean-Louis Vincent - RÉSONANCES, LP Barclay 90.032 (1975) may just be folk, but has some interesting musicians on it

Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit - is on the French new wave discography where it says "progresif"
